Re: How do you break a boat?

Ripped the bottom out of my beloved Inazone on very sharp rocks in Ness Glen. Took the nose and tail (on the same day) of my Supernova slalom boat surfing off Irvine beach. Also did some damage to my Riot Nitro after a long painful swim on the Bachelard (what a beautiful river though !!!)
